The AV Group, a member of the Aditya Birla Group of India announced the successful conversion of AV Nackawic from hardwood paper grade pulp to the production of dissolving pulp. Dissolving pulp is the main raw material used in the manufacture of Viscose Staple Fibre (rayon).

"The initial quality levels have exceeded our expectations," said Mr. Peter Vinall, President and CEO of AV Group. "We are able to quickly ramp up our production levels while continuing to develop our quality parameters thanks to advanced cooking technology. Our success in converting to a higher value added product has been made possible due to the hard work and dedication of our employees and the support from Aditya Birla technical resources and Lenzing Technik whose advanced pulping technology is at the core of our new facility."

The AV Nackawic operation will initially produce 190,000 tonnes of high quality dissolving pulp, primarily for consumption in Aditya Birla viscose plants in India, Thailand, Indonesia and China. Plans are underway to increase output significantly subject to availability of additional hardwood in New Brunswick.
